The Diary of William Fairfax Gray ,
from Virginia to Texas, 1835-1837, William Fairfax Gray, edited by Paul D. Lack, DeGolyer Library & William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, ill. 8, pp. xxviii, 305, 1997. Published with permission. Online version 2003 (359 files, 7.8 MB).
Here's a summary for anyone not familiar with this important work. William Fairfax Gray was 48 years old with a fresh license to practice law when he left his wife and family in Fredericksburg, Virginia to journey to Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. This first job with his cousin's law firm was to seek land for investment of eastern capital. His diary gives us an intimate view of daily life and the rigors of travel by stagecoach, steamship and horse on the early 1800s frontier. In his travels Gray became acquainted with just about every important person of the Texas Revolution, recording his impressions of them in his diary. He was an observer and recorder of many events in the birth of the Republic of Texas, giving us through his diary a feeling of being there ourselves.
